Rolling Texture Differences in Duplex Steels with Strong and Random Initial Orientations
The present examination concerns a comparison of rolling texture development in two stainless steels of duplex type with different intensities of ferrite and austenite initial textures after a preliminary treatment, namely; clearly defined strong textures of both phases in one steel and nearly random textures in the case of the second one. Essentially the constituent phases in both duplex steels tend to develop the rolling textures comparable with those in single phase steels. However, the final textures display certain differences in comparison to the typical ferrite and austenite rolling textures. In both duplex steels the formation and character of the final deformation textures is strongly influenced by the band-like morphology of the ferrite-austenite structure and the process of texture formation proceeds in different way depending on the initial orientation distribution.
